I have a question that I’m struggling to find a solution. We have thousands of NX CAD models, drawings and assemblies. I’m looking for a solution that would allow a query for text that would search within all our NX files for that particular text. For example, if we have s specific material specification “049123” called on a drawing, I would like to have the ability to perform a search of the text string “049123” and have a report/response telling me all the files found containing that text string. I’m open to any solution. Feature within NX9 we aren’t aware of? An added module we could purchase for NX9 that would provide that functionality? A third party software that would provide a solution? Any help in directing me towards a solution would be great! Thanks.
There was just a thread here on replacing text with other text:
Replace Text parts of Notes
That can be expanded (be aware the journal pointed to only finds text in NOTES, not in labels, appended text, or tabular notes, or if you use them, attributes or string expressions).
Note also there is the Siemens "solutions" database that has many API examples:
But you'll probably have to put it all together yourself.
Production: NX10.0.3.5 MP16/TC11.2
I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
